Chicago White Sox Trade Rumors: 5 Reasons Zack Greinke Will Land in Chicago

With two weeks remaining before the MLB non-waiver trade deadline, the Chicago White Sox have been rumored to be very interested in Milwaukee Brewers pitching ace, Zack Greinke.

The White Sox extended their division lead Tuesday to 3.5 games over the Detroit Tigers, and the White Sox will be looking to shore up their pitching staff following news of another injured starting pitcher.

Starter Gavin Floyd went on the disabled list Tuesday with a sore elbow, prompting the White Sox to announce that rookie Pedro Hernandez will take the mound Wednesday in the series finale at Boston.

With the White Sox still unsure of the date of John Danks' return to the mound, the necessity of trading for a starting pitcher has undoubtedly forced White Sox general manager Kenny Williams to begin working the phones, looking to make a deal for a big arm.

That big arm just might be Greinke. Rumors of Greinke being dealt from Milwaukee have been swirling for days as the Brewers continue to struggle.

As the White Sox look for ways to improve their playoff chances, Williams will likely be shopping the big names on the trading block, such as Greinke, Cole Hamels and Ryan Dempster.

After trading for third baseman Kevin Youkilis, the White Sox are clearly buyers during the run-up to the trade deadline, and adding either a starter or reliever to their pitching staff would greatly improve their playoff hopes.

Greinke is arguably the biggest name in the trading pool, and his arrival to Chicago would give the White Sox a playoff-caliber starting rotation.

Here is a look at 10 reasons why Greinke should be wearing black in Chicago before the end of the trade deadline.
